Selecting the right resources for your research can be a challenge. There are a wide range of available features, among them textbooks, items and web sites. Various resources can supply different kinds of information: Scientific textbooks contain relevant information and may contain extensive reports on research or science, historic information, reviews, expert opinions on topics/topics.
If you need information and related research on a subject, if you want to deepen a research subject or if you want to associate your subject with other important topics, use a book. Disadvantage: Since it can sometimes take years to produce and distribute a book, they are not always the best source for topicality.
In many scientific periodicals, contributions undergo a so-called ªpeer reviewº procedure. This means that the items are reviewed by scientists and other specialists. In addition to scientific information, magazine contributions may also contain contributions and/or responses to the latest research findings and topic-specific information. If you need to carry out research on a particular issue, use scientific periodicals, scientific or professional papers and papers, factually recorded information to strengthen a research post, or reference listings that point you to other research of relevance.
Scientific periodicals take less publishing timeframe than reading a book, but the peer reviewed processes can be tedious. Scientific periodicals contain information of scientific interest, so they are not the best source for issues of general interest. They may not contain up-to-date messages or information about recent events, as the process of reviewing peers can be time-consuming.
Sites offer the latest information and the latest developments, new developments and contentious issues. It may also include goverment publication such as reviews, stats, legal and services information, interview, press releases, research reviews, conference/workshop/symposium paper, cards and other kinds of resource. Since anyone can post something on the Internet, the information on the Site may be imprecise, prejudiced and sometimes out-of-date.
There is very little scientific information available on the open web.
